If only I had been there,
maybe I would have saved you.
Every time I close my eyes,
images of you keep playing
in my mind like music notes.

Can’t I just forget?
Or is it really that hard for me to accept
one of the best souls was taken?
The smiles, the tight huge hugs he gave,
all went down the drain in minutes.

While some celebrate a life
others cry the whole night.
Is life fair sometimes?
Maybe everything happens for a reason.
Will it pass or are we yet to face storms?

Oh Death, who are you?
Are you just a headache or shadow
that follows us our entire life?
